Damnacanthus indicus ssp. major / Ooaridooshi オオアリドオシ

 
Damnancanthus indicus ssp. major is an evergreen shrub inhabiting an evergreen forest, reaching the height of 50-100cm. The branch arranges a large and a small pair of opposite leaves alternatively on it. On stems, there are sharp thorns, which are shorter than that of half of a plate, which makes a clear difference from another sub-species, D. indicus ssp. indicus.
